The Plaid Skirt Goes to School
The Q/A is first today. Cherie had to ask about the plaid skirt: What will you wear with it?
Here I am this morning ready for school:
The skirt is higher waisted, but not neck-threatening. I realize it's not an obvious raised waist, but on me a little bit higher and we'd be under the bustline. It's a bit too warm to wear turtlenecks, but I could wear a black one with this skirt. Otherwise I'd wear a white button up shirt, but between it being in the laundry and the temperature today, I wore the white t-shirt and black sweater combo instead. After wearing the skirt all day, I can say that it is comfortable and the elastic in the back panel is the perfect amount of ease for walking.
After school, I went over to Jo-ann's and got all this fabric:
There's one yard of red/white/black boucle (of which I hope to find more at another store), almost 4 yards of one black 100% wool suiting and 3 yards of different wool suiting, plus 1 1/2 yards of flannel backed satin lining for my son's coat. I also bought a zipper and two notions. Total price? $28.39. Between the clearance sale and another discount I get, I got the wool which was originally $15.00 per yard, for $2.25 per yard! I've got plans for almost all of that fabric, too.
Parting Shot: My son made me this picture. I'm sure you know exactly what he meant. He has also done a few others of some of my other show pieces, too, they're pretty cute.
